    I have one more problem. I would like to control my HTPC without turning on the TV (if I want to listen to music or radio) and I have VFD LCD on my case. If I navigate through the home screen, I can see only "Basic home" on the first line of the LCD and no text on bottom line.

    I figured that's because MiniDisplay is displaying #selecteditem value and if that's empty #highlightedbutton value for the second line. Since basic home in B&W 1080 is using in common.menu.3rows.xml buttons with empty label, nothing is drawn on the LCD



    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. <control>
    3.     <description>1 - Button</description>
    4.     <type>button</type>
    5.     <id>99201</id>
    6.     <posX>40</posX>
    7.     <posY>260</posY>
    8.     <width>300</width>
    9.     <height>180</height>
    10.     <textureFocus>basichome_focus.png</textureFocus>
    11.     <textureNoFocus></textureNoFocus>
    12.     <hyperlink>#item1hyperlink</hyperlink>
    13.     <label></label>         <== this is the problem
    14.     <onup>99212</onup>
    15.     <onleft>99212</onleft>
    16.     <ondown>99205</ondown>
    17.     <onright>99202</onright>
    18. </control>
    Anybody encountered the same problem and found a way how to fix it?

    common.menu.3rows.xml was made this way so we could center the label below the icon.

    Try adding the following to the button controls:
    <label>#item1label</label>
    <textYOff>1080</textYOff>

    Thanks a lot for the idea! I managed to do it the "cleaner" way by setting the text to transparent color:

    <label>#item1label</label>
    <textcolor>00000000</textcolor>
    <textcolorNoFocus>00000000</textcolorNoFocus>
